What a year it has been!

At the start of 2023, we celebrated our 20th birthday. When we reflect on the last 20 years, we wonder at how significantly the world has changed since we were a small start-up in an Enterprise Centre. Cyber has entered the mainstream; no longer a niche, the reserve of the strange world of the technogeek, and the concepts of Cyber-Physical, Convergence and Holistic Security, which we were at the forefront of, continue to be hotly discussed today.

2023 proved to be our year with several award nominations, finalist positions and even some won! Take a look at our achievements here;


Security Serious Unsung Heroes Awards – Mike Gillespie, Godfather of Security

The Security Institute – Outstanding Contribution to Security in Memory of George Van Schalkwyk – Mike Gillespie


British Ex-Forces in Business Awards – Employer of the Year Award – Advent IM

The Real Cyber Awards – Data Protection Service Provider of the Year – Advent IM

The Real Cyber Awards – Cyber Citizen –  Mike Gillespie

Risk Awards (Postponed – 2024) – Security Leader of the Year – Mike Gillespie


With thanks to our clients, partners and team for creating an award-worthy Advent IM.
